Formerly known as United Oil, United Pacific–through its convenience stores and its retail and wholesale fuel distribution network–has established itself as one of the largest independent owners, suppliers and operators of gas stations and convenience stores in the western United States. United Pacific offers motor fuels products under the 76, Conoco, Shell and United Oil flags and convenience-store items through the We Got It! Food Mart, My Goods Market and Circle K brands.
United Pacificâ€™s move from Gardena to Long Beachâ€™s Douglas Business Park is a highly anticipated one. An employee driven decision, United Pacific sought for a space that promotes collaboration, drives productivity, and fosters employee retention and dedication. The new corporate headquarters is a 40,376 s.f., 2-story build-to-suit concrete tilt-up building on an 115,455 s.f. site at the corner of Worsham Avenue and Cover Street in Long Beach, California.
Project Highlights Include
- Infusion of the companyâ€™s culture and history into the new and modern space. Signature wall placement of vintage photos, corporate history timeline, and an employee recognition display.
- Visitors are greeted in the front lobby by a classic 1953 Chevy Bel Air Convertible that has been repurposed into a reception desk and parked in front of two gas pumps.
- The Rocket C-Store, a fully stocked, life-size mockup of United Pacificâ€™s owned and operated gas station convenience stores.
- Other considerations to promote employee wellness, openness, and engagement include sound masking technologies, natural light, large open workspaces, ample appropriately sized meeting spaces, a fitness center, upstairs game area, community kitchen and outdoor entertainment area.
- Upscale finishes and contemporary details include a custom conference table, carpet, lighting, wall tiling and high-end furnishings.
- Wood panels in variations of blue were individually hand-cut to achieve the look of waves, which were inspired by United Pacificâ€™s own gas station canopy of blue waves.

Historical MuralThe mural seen above is the â€śKelco Historical Community Muralâ€ť created in 1992-1993 by Salvador and Gloria Torres. The mural was painted on the street-facing walls of what was then a Kelco-facility known as the Goldy Building, on the corner of Harbor Drive and Cesar Chavez Boulevard. As required by the City of San Diego, the walls of the mural needed to be preserved by Restaurant Depot. Oltmans worked with Restaurant Depot to make sure that the mural was safely and carefully extracted during demolition and construction. The mural walls were braced with a steel, earthquake-proof structure. Restaurant Depot continues to support and provide the funds for the restoration of the mural, which was made necessary by years of neglect, and is supervised by Salvador Torres himself.
